Quinoa Burgers

I used a balsamic and maple syrup dressing and ate my burger over spinach, it was incredible!

This recipe is the best quinoa burger that I have ever had! I have been a vegetarian for a long time and I have tried many different burgers, this one surpasses them all! I was on pinterest the other day and found a quinoa burger recipe. I made some modifications because I didn’t like everything about the other one and came up with the following recipe. They are easy and amazingly flavorfull! I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 cups cooked quinoa

3/4 cup shredded cheese (any variety)

1/2 cup cream cheese, cubed

1/8 cup rice milk

1 medium carrot, finely grated

3 eggs

3 tablespoons whole wheat flour

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Mixture will be sticky, be sure to mix very well!

Directions:

Bring 2 cups water to a boil, add quinoa and reduce heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until seeds are tender. Remove from heat and let cool. In a large bowl combine the cooled cooked quinoa, cheese, cream cheese, carrot, eggs, flour, cumin, salt, and garlic powder.

I used my non-stick cooktop and it worked really well. Burgers didn't stick and I barely needed to use any oil.

Heat a pan and add a couple teaspoons extra virgin olive oil over medium-low heat.  Mixture will be sticky. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop mixture into pan and flatten to 1/2 inch thick.  Fry until golden-brown, about 6 minutes on each side.   Makes a dozen burgers.
